Good evening everyone - just a quick post from me this evening ... first day back at work after my mega sniffles and boy am I tired!!
Every year I promise myself that I am going to crack on with my Christmas cards during the year rather than getting into a complete lather come November ... but alas every year is the same and my New Year resolution crashes and burns!! This year I really have no excuse for not getting started though, as I received a fabulous package of stamps for Christmas from my lovely friend Jennifer which included the most adorable Christmas stamp imaginable ... and here it is.
Isn't teddie totally the cutest?? This really was a wonderful Christmas surprise from a fantastic friend :-)
I have to admit though, one of the reasons that I tend to shy away from cards using the colour red is that for some reason the photographed colour never seems to come out right ... all the reds on the card are somewhat darker than the photo shows.
Stamps: Stampavie "Teddie's Stocking"; sentiment by Crafter's Companion;
Media: Promarkers and Flexmarkers; Stickles on flower and birdie's hat;
Supplies: poinsetta flower from Crafts4U2Do; gems from The Hobby House; ribbon from my stash;
Tools: "Decorative Labels Eight" nestabilities; Cheery Lynn "Holly Flourish" die; Cuttlebug "Holly Ribbons" embossing folder.
